Crankworx DS Final Results

WHISTLER, BC (derailedonline.com) - After a delay due to timing system problems, the dual slalom took place Sunday at Crankworx 2007. This was the first year Crankworx has hosted a dual slalom race. Dual slalom proved to be much more spectator friendly than the 4x race with more people in attendance and a larger participation of riders - I think we are starting to see a sharp decline in 4x popularity and a resurgence of dual slalom racing. Some of the top DH racers decided to put their skills to the test on the tight dual slalom course located in the Boneyard of the Whistler resort. After a heated race filled with big crashes and great racing, South African Greg Minnaar was crowned king of the dual slalom. With downhill prodigy, Sam Hill ringing in for second. Tracey Mosely of Great Britain took the first place in pro womens event with Joanna Petterson of South Africa coming in for the number two spot.

Pro Men:
1. Greg Minnaar
2. Sam Hill
3. JD Swangren
4. Andrew Neethling

Pro Women:
